Myra Little Snow Tafoya was known for her creative deep carved pottery. She is a daughter of Lucy Yearflower Tafoya, a granddaughter of Camilio Tafoya and the sister of Shawn, Kelli Little Katchina and Forrest Tafoya. She began making pottery in the early 1970’s and was featured in the “7 Families in Pueblo Pottery” book. While Myra no longer makes pottery, her early pieces are a wonderful part of the history of Camilio Tafoya’s family legacy.  This jar is a larger piece of her pottery.  It is carved around the shoulder with a cloud pattern.  Around the sides there is a feather pattern along with a sun and an avanyu.  The designs are tighly carved and highly polihsed.  The background is also fully etched to create a striking contrast with the highly polihsed designs.  The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay “Myra Little Snow”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
